Decorating with Pictures at Free Stylin’

Hey y’all! I’m Beth, and my blog is called Free Stylin’. I love talking about “living a stylish life without the expensive pricetag.” Whether it’s home decor, DIY, crafts, or recipes, I love finding ways to make things beautiful without spending a lot. The Hubs and I are parents to three SUPER CUTE boys, and we live in my hometown of Austin, Texas.

I am thrilled to be a part of sweet Kristen’s Decorating with Pictures Series! Don’t you just get tons of great ideas from these awesome posts? They keep my Pinning button busy for sure. So today I’d like to take you on a little tour around the Free Stylin’ house and show you how I’ve incorporated pictures of my family in our decor.

Now, I’m gonna be straight up with you…we don’t have a ton of pics on the walls. In the last 6+ years we have moved a ton for The Hubs’s job. It wasn’t always fun (or allowed) to put up lots of pictures and then have to take them back down. But now things have settled down for us – the moving has changed into business trips instead (whoohoo!). So I am slowly finding ways to incorporate pictures around the house – that don’t have to get taken down unless I want them to! ;)

There is a little area in our home that’s located right when you walk in through the garage. It’s also a part of the kitchen and family room, so people see it ALL.THE.TIME. My cute (and lazy) family liked tossing their stuff right there to get stepped on, tripped over, and eventually lost. So I made a “mudroom” out of a Target bookshelf for them to use to put their crap away. (Read more about it HERE.) Above the bookshelf are pictures of my cute boys and some of The Hubs and me when were their age.

Target Threshold Bookcase

Using inexpensive frames from Ikea, I was able to frame pictures of my boys that were printed from Walmart.com. The boys also love looking at pictures of their parents when we were their age, so I grabbed a few to display. They are hung from clear string with two decorative tacks. Each picture is taped to the string. I think it took me maybe 15 minutes at the most to create, and the cost was FREE using things I already had around the house.

One of my favorite pictures is in the family room. My mother-in-law snapped shots of these cute feet on the last day of school. It’s amazing how worn out little shoes get after a year of running around and learning! Below it is a picture of my middle guy’s feet. He was so young at the time – it’s fun to compare how big he is now and how much his baby brother’s feet look like his.

In our kitchen is my solution to wanting a new kitchen table but not being able to run right out and buy a new one. … Continue Reading

Decorating with Pictures at Simply Designing

Hi Capturing Joy readers!  I am Ashley from Simply Designing and I am absolutely thrilled to be participating in Kristen’s Decorating with Pictures series!  I am an interior designer turned DIY / Craft Blogger.  My passion for interior design grew into a love of creating and one day I decided to start blogging about it!  And I absolutely love it!  I love power tools and my hot glue gun, but my sewing machine slightly scares me.  I love life and find joy in the simple things!  I love my family and friends and I am a firm believer that a good cup of hot chocolate or ice cream cures most things.  I am grateful for all I have every single day.  

We recently created a Gallery Wall with a few very special family photos.  You see, we recently lost our son at 28 weeks, and we miraculously happened to take family photos the day before we lost him.  It was a true miracle and an amazing blessing in our life.  We have the most amazing photos of our family now and I will forever be grateful for them!  So we certainly did not want these photos to go to waste, so we took a huge empty wall we had in our family room and got to DIYing to create an amazing Gallery Wall to show off these priceless photos!

Here is a sneak peek at the wall before and after:

Thanks so much Kristen for allowing me to be a part of your amazing series!

Thanks, Ashley! Love how you filled that big empty wall with family pictures!
